This was the second time we have been there. Everything we have had has been excellent. The front room (to the left of hostess stand) was very cold both times. If you like "meat locker cold" ask to be seated there. Luckily we were in a different section the second time. Fans were blowing a bit strong at first, but then they turned them down without our asking. The chairs are not the most comfortable for me, but that's a personal preference. Next time I will ask to sit in a booth in the bar though the view of the park (across the street) is a reason to sit in one of the front rooms. Definitely going back. Will pick a non-weekend night when there is no event. Parking was expensive because we could not find street parking.

We had a pre-theatre meal here. The place was quiet and romantic—but it was me and my mother, so that was kind of funny! We had shrimp and risotto and flat iron steak with frites. Both cooked and seasoned perfectly! The service is somewhat European so don’t expect any hovering—which we hate.

We were seated immediately for our reservation. They turned the lighting down almost before 6 p.m. and the light over us was turned off. We thought it was too dark. There was a large group next to us but they were not distracting as tables are well-spaced. We order wine which came out promptly. French onion soup was delicious and ample. Crab cake and steak fries were very good. Portions are good sized so think less, not more. We were celebrating a birthday and they brought out a complimentary berry crepe, which was a nice touch.

Food was outstanding, this could have been a 5, but the bar service was ridiculously slow and inconsistent. My negative rating on service was because of the bar, not the food service waitstaff.

First time here. Service was excellent. The food was even better. I really recommend this place. Day we visited it was a little muggy and rainy outside. So the windows were closed. Will definitely come back when it’s a little cooler outside in the patio windows are open.

Although we had a table booked, we got seated in the middle of the passage between the restaurant and the bar. It took a while for a waiter to come, and then the service was very slow and inattentive. Our waiter even forgot to order our dessert, which the manager eventually offered to us compliment of the house. Overall, it was a disappointing experience, despite the good quality of the food.

We had a meal before attending a concert nearby. Meal was delicious, but our server pretty much “forgot us”. I appreciated that it was a busy time, but had to ask several times for the cocktails we ordered & never received the wine I ordered with my dinner.

Will definitely return & hope for better service next time.

We ate here prior to a concert. Food was great but service was not good. The young woman who served us was very nice & very good but completely overwhelmed & stressed and had way too many tables. We waited for over 20 minutes for our drinks. The manager saw we were waiting but did nothing to help. When we finally complained to him he acknowledged she had too many tables, but still no help or resolution. Food was excellent, but they need to either reduce the number of tables they serve or hire more people. I realize there is an issue with getting employees, but the restaurant should consider taking fewer reservations. Again, the server was lovely & was trying, but just completely overwhelmed. BTW—there was no salt/pepper on the table. This practice by restaurants is ridiculous & annoying.

I wish it had been better, but it wasn't. We chose Brasserie du Parc because of its proximity to Toyota Center (where we had concert tickets) and because we'd had a pretty good meal there a few years ago.

Last night, service was so very slow and disorganized that when my husband asked to speak to the manager (about missing bread in 2 of 3 servings of French Onion Soup), our friends immediately joked that it would probably take the manager forever to show up - and in fact, we had to ask twice before he did.

Because our waitress allowed 20-odd minutes to go by between introducing herself and returning for drink orders, we ordered everything at once. She did ask those of us who opted for a soup/salad dinner if we wanted them together, and we said yes. But somehow that translated to all 4 dinners showing up at the same time as the salad/soup, not just 2, so our 4-top table became horribly crowded. Drinks came out in 3 passes (red wine, white wine, a martini), and we had to ask several times for bread for 2 of the party who'd arrived after the bread waiter had stopped by.

We made it to the concert on time - barely. I doubt other diners with the same plans did.

Apart from the missing bread in the soup, the food was pretty good - but not great.

First time to dine here and based on the food this is now one of my favorite restaurants in Houston!
The food is excellent!

Only comment from a personal preference is maybe less cream on the pasta dish we tried (pates lingguone et hachis de boeuf)

The berries crepe was amazing!

Our server was Wallace and he was great

The reason for the 4 stars is that the wine we received was 4 years younger than the one on the menu for the same price. It was ok once decanted with time to breathe, but not what we expected. We learned of the change when the server arrived with the bottle and chose to go with it. Otherwise, the salmon crepes were excellent, the salad was fresh and the chocolate fondant dessert was absolutely to die for!! All in all a lovely meal.

A gem in downtown across from Discovery Green. A great place for drinks (very nice bar area) or a dinner before or after going to the Hobby Center. Service as first class and food was excellent and the pricing was moderate, better than expected. Highly recommend.
